Valerie Campbell - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

I am Baird Warner (B&W) agent at Barrington office.

During our sales meeting, our B&W office manager asked agents this question "if your life depends on you selling your home in 30 days, you can not list it yourself. Who would you list with and why?" I had no hesitation to say "Valerie Campbell!" and here's why. I can "TRUST" her with my kids and my finance. She is honest, responsible, very personal, a great listener, very experienced (over 23 plus years) and never skim over important details. I know she will fight for me and also, I know SHE CAN SELL! I highly recommend Valerie Campbell as your agent for listing & buying. She will EXCEED your expectation.

Tim & Christine

We were very fortunate to have Valerie as our realtor.

After 35 plus years in our home, her advice was critical in the decision process with suggestions and ideas throughout our listing and the sale of our home. She stayed in touch frequently with us and on market conditions. Valerie became more that an outstanding realtor but became a real friend to both my wife and I. She was simply great to work with!

Heather Anderson

We were referred to Val by a neighbor who sold his house in just a few weeks.

She came highly recommended. We had appointments with 3 different realtors before we decided who we were going to use. Valerie was the first realtor we interviewed and we knew from out first meeting she would be the  realtor that would sell our house. We cancelled the other two after meeting her. We have worked with many realtors in our lifetime but Val definitely was the best realtor we have ever worked with. She was on the ball, very smart, great great advice, excellent communication and handled every detail the way we expected. Our house was sold in 3 months.

Valerie was very thorough and explained everything to my brother and I.

She was always available which was a huge help to me since I have never sold a home before. And she went above and beyond the call-of-duty by 'landscaping' the area around the septic tank the day of closing. She made this home selling much easier than it could have been.

Glen & Coleen S

We just sold our house thanks to Valerie!

Any real estate agent can sell a house in a sellers market but only the very talented professionals like Valerie can get the job done in a super competitive "buyers" market. Not only did Valerie get the job done, she was always there for us throughout the whole process. She was very helpful, flexible and supportive when we needed to rent our house for a period of time. Valerie goes beyond the "transactional" interaction with her customers, she is always available and genuinely cares about her customers. Five big starts!

Valerie was great to deal with.

Her insights on the local market was great. helping us stage our house helped us sell in three days and above our asking price

Bradley Carr

Valerie has been outstanding to work with.

Let's face it, the market has been rough, but she stuck to it and got the job done. She helped find me a renter when the place wasn't selling due to market conditions. Then this spring, we listed it again, and boom, it finally sold. She advised me to get higher pricing for the unit and it not only sold but at a much higher price than I ever anticipated (20% higher). She has been the utmost professional throughout the process. I would highly recommend her to list a house or purchase one too.

Dorothy Morizzo

There are not enough superlatives to describe Valerie Campbell's dedication and commitment to selling our mother's house.

We started our process with another broker who was ineffective and switched to Valerie who was recommended by a friend. the house was empty and we live an hour away. Valerie made countless trips to check on the property after storms, to meet with vendors and contractors and her availability and follow-up was what one would expect from a top flight lawyer or investment banker. we were lucky to have found her. on a scale of "10" valerie is a "12."

John Svoboda

I cannot say enough about Valerie.

  She is so very professional and personable.  Valerie continually worked to market our home without being asked.  Always promptly returns calls and follows up with showings.  Baird & Warner - you have a gem working for you!

Mrs. Ross

This is the second house Valerie has sold for me.

The first was my mothers house, which we needed to sell after she passed. A friend recommended Valerie after she sold his house. I called Valerie and set up a meeting. I had a million questions with regard to my mothers house and estate and she answered all my questions and put me at ease. The house sold despite the housing crisis, which was raging at the time (late 2011). I immediately thought of Valerie when my wife and I decided to move out of Illinois. Her energy and acumen were again welcome. She thought we should list it for much more than we thought and knew we would get near asking price, which is what happened. We had a contract in less than 3 days after it went on the market. While we were already out of state, Valerie oversaw our needs and organized help with a couple of issues that needed fixing at buyers request. The closing was smooth and ordered and we were highly satisfied. We cannot recommend Valerie enough.

Paul Riese & Joy Montgomery

I retained Valerie Campbell to help me market and sell a beautiful wooded 2.

6 acre homesite in Long Grove because she had experience with similar property. It was a good decision. Valerie is responsive, hardworking and a problem solver. She and Baird & Warner are old school professionals and I would happily use them again.

Valerie is an all star and a five star agent!

She is easy to work with and always reachable, responsive and flexible. Her number one mission is to help you buy or sell your home as fast as possible. She is a multi-tasker and can pack a lot into one day -everyday! I can't sing her praises enough having both bought and sold a home with Valerie in the past 5 years. I highly recommend her!

Sharon Elliott

From Day One, we knew Valerie was not just a Realtor who 'gathered up' Listings.

We saw her as unique because she is a 'Professional Salesperson' with 25 + years of experience in the Barrington Real Estate markets. We entered poor Market conditions yet Valerie executed on Marketing Programs of all kinds, networked and immediately followed up on any lead and communicated to both of us frequently. We ended up with multiple offers over time and things got complicated. We then came to appreciate the expertise developed thru those 25+ years of strategy formulation and experience. She was involved with every detail until the very end. My Wife and I 500% recommend her to anyone who is looking for an 'A Plus' realtor !!!!

The only rating we could possibly give Valerie Campbell (no relation) is excellent.

We have known Valerie for 22 years, through 2 previous buying and selling transactions. We are extremely impressed with her preparation, commitment to delivering the best results for the client, her high level of experience and sound advice. Valerie is exceptional!

Jim and Sue Campbell

Valerie was outstanding as our RE broker.

She knew the local market and really helped guide us through the selling and buying process. We used her advice from the beginning to address items on the house we sold before putting it on the market. She helped us through each stage- presenting it, negotiating offers, negotiating the contract, negotiating the same on our purchase, amazing contacts on repairs, even helped us find a place to drop off paint and motor oil as we moved out! She's caring, responsive, practical, humorous, and has a positive sunny disposition. We loved working with her through a difficult process-she made it manageable. She's a rockstar for sure!

Daniel Newquist

We had an excellent experience buying our home with Valerie's assistance.

My wife and I were looking for a house in a very limited geographical area. Valerie worked with us on a very personal basis and helped us to understand what we really wanted. It was her local area knowledge and networking  that enabled us to purchase our new home. Valerie is the most patient person I know; she’s completely open to hearing what you have to say and continues to listen whole heartedly. Valerie is knowledgeable and always available. She would always show up on short notice and take us to see potential homes. She has great negotiation skills to work with sellers to carve you out financial benefits. We simply could not have done this without her.
